Swimming Pool Gas Heating
Gas heating is a reliable way to heat pools with a large surface area. Gas heating does not require sunlight or large amounts of electricity, making it ideal for regions with overcast weather. Gas heaters are extremely powerful and are capable of heating a large pool remarkably quickly. These systems are often used at spa pools where it is necessary to keep the water at the perfect temperature at all times.
However, a pool with gas heating is not as eco-friendly as solar or heat pumps because it is powered using fossil fuels (LPG or Natural Gas) that emit carbon dioxide.
Electric Heat Pumps
A pool heat pump is another popular choice for pool heating. Electric heat pumps collect heat from the environment and pass it over an evaporator coil and heat exchanger to heat any water that runs through it. Although electric units also depend on fossil fuels, an electric pool heater is a clever way to use energy from the environment and use it to heat water cost-effectively. Heat pumps are easy to use, install, and are capable of heating pools faster than solar units. The disadvantage of an electric pool heater is that it will require a large amount of energy to heat the pool water. Although these units are powerful, they are not the most eco-friendly solution, unless paired with an appropriately sized Solar electric PV Panel system
Solar Heating in Pools
If you live in a sunny part of the world, solar energy might just be the best option for your pool heating requirements. Solar energy is clean, renewable and makes you energy independent. Solar pool heating systems are made using high-quality components that can withstand harsh weather, and the lower utility bills more than makeup for the initial cost of equipment.
What To Consider When Choosing a Pool Heat Pump
Consider how often you intend of using your swimming pool in cooler weather
Gas heaters require fuel, electric heat pumps can drive one’s utility costs and solar units require a large roof space. Consider the various costs involved to stay within budget
The size of the pool will determine the type of heater. For instance, large pools may require an electric heater to heat the water quickly.
